    You know it..but then again the temps in the area are very unpredictable, mountain valley off the Fundy Coast. By midday the following day there was a 26 degree difference about 30 miles from where we were so I wasn't going to tempt fate. Plus I like being comfortable...I like hiking...but I love setting up camp.

I kicked myself for not bringing at least one extra hammock...".
    lol....

    I've got one pretty much convinced..the other is skeptical, especially since I fell ... I tried to tell him it wasn't the hammock but a cheap carabiner (to answer your question...it was a piece of junk).
